Presentation ceremony

We look forward to welcoming you to our presentation ceremony being held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel (Monach Suite), July 14-15, 2015.

Any number of guests are welcome to attend daytime presentations, allowing all who have contributed to the organisation's achievements to celebrate their success. Informal seating will be available allowing supporters to watch proceedings, whilst the nominated person is presented with the award. A cash bar will be available serving drinks and light refreshments.

Timing is critical to the smooth running of the ceremony and we would therefore make the following recommendations:

  • Arrive at least 15 minutes before your registration time and wait in the presentation room for your group to be called to register.
  • Help keep delays to a minimum by adhering to the rule of 'one recipient per award'.
  • The nominated recipient should report promptly to the registration desk when your group number is called.

We will endeavour to present your award within 30 minutes of registration.

Registration and presentation time notifications will be sent via email by the end of June (Birmingham). If you have not received details by this date, please contact the RoSPA Awards administration team on +44 (0)121 248 2090/91.

Order Photographs

The official RoSPA photographers will be on-hand at each ceremony to record award presentations in full colour. Award winners will receive one copy free of charge. Photographs are 8"x6" and provided suitably mounted. These will be despatched 10 working days after each ceremony. If required sooner, please order a digital version which can be sent via email the week following your presentation.

Please note that only the official RoSPA photographers will be permitted to take photographs of the award presentations.

Extra copies and digital copy orders

Extra copies and digital versions of your presentation photograph are available to order.

  • Additional hard copies: £20.00 plus VAT
  • Digital versions: £40.00 plus VAT

Group photographs

Successful health and safety management undoubtedly involves team effort. A great way to recognise the whole team's contribution is with a group photograph. The image will be saved to USB as a high resolution jpeg and will be available to take away on the day, making it ideal for immediate use for PR purposes and in-house newsletters.

Pre-order a group photograph for £45.00 plus VAT. Payment can be made by cheque (made payable to RoSPA Enterprises Ltd); by debit/credit card or on receipt of an official purchase order number for invoicing.

On the day, visit the group photography room (Birmingham: Warwick Suite) once you have collected your award.

The evening proceedings centre on a glittering Gala Dinner, at which some of this year's top awards will be presented.

After Dinner Entertainment

Gala Dinner Booking

Entertainment will be provided by Henning Wehn, a self-appointed German Comedy Ambassador to the UK. His comedy plays effectively on the English stereotype of Germans as humourless and efficiency obsessed.

Having moved to the UK in 2002, working in marketing at Wycombe Wanderers FC, Henning 'took office' in 2003 after watching a comedy club open mic night convinced him he could do better. He has performed stand-up ever since. Henning regularly appears with fellow German performer Otto Kuhnle, and their show 1000 Years of German Humour was nominated for the Barry Award at the 2009 Melbourne Comedy Festival. He also won the Hackney Empire New Act of the Year, 2005.

Henning Wehn’s "beautifully crafted diatribes" (Time Out) are delivered with all too real passion, covering topics from football to the price of second-hand shoes, what the Germans think of our beloved 'Allo 'Allo series, to why humour is overrated and stand-up comedy pointless.

Numerous TV appearances include 8 Out of 10 cats, Would I Lie To You, Have I Got News For You, QI, This Week and Ten O’Clock Live. Regular radio appearances include Radio 5 Live's Fighting Talk, Radio 4's The News Quiz, The Now Show (Radio 4), The Unbelievable Truth (Radio 4) & Henning Knows Best (BBC Radio 2)

The evening will continue with dancing and live music.

Dress code: Lounge suit, smart evening wear or traditional dress.
